Jessica is an Industrial Design Engineer. Postgraduate European University in Industrial Design Engineering and PhD candidate in the Materials Engineering programme. She has specialized in design strategies and methodologies for innovation. Her project focus is on working from the speculative and creative process that allows scientific-technological knowledge, on exploring these contexts with the aim of developing disruptive proposals in future scenarios and on considering that the human body is a vital part of this thought. In the last years she has been focusing on application areas related to Smart Ink, Printed Electronics, Functional Textiles, human-integrated nanobiosensory and applications of graphene materials. This work has given basis to her PhD thesis, which studies the new paradigms of design susceptible to abolish physical limits of the matter before the current change of technological age. In parallel, she has participated in national and international congresses and has published articles related to her research in these fields. She has been and is part of several European research projects, Horizon 2020 and the Generalitat de Catalunya. She belongs to the emerging HIMTS group of Elisava Research. She eventually collaborates as a mentor and adviser in social innovation and technological entrepreneurship programs.
Researcher at Elisava Research (Futures Now), Director of the Master's Degree in Industrial Design Engineering and Coordinator of Design Engineering projects in Elisava.
